“Very impressed. While not perfect, it can distinguish with high accuracy between different species in our collection of rare plants. It can even recognize down to cultivar sometimes-amazing. Amazed how it can work with any photo and it will give recognition a go-with impressive accuracy.”

Fabulous and useful
Incredibly useful app. Does an awesome job identifying plants and shows great photo examples so you can be sure you’re getting the right results! Has care tips, tells you if a plant is potentially hazardous, shows commonly asked questions and their answers, and so much more. Love that I can “save to my garden” and look back at what I’ve scanned and reread the info anytime. Love the “diagnose” feature as well!! Had helped us identify different diseases and root rot and gives advice for care. Turns out we planted some (hardware store purchased) basil that had some infection in the roots that seeps into the soil, so now we can’t plant basil or mint or anything in our garden for several years. Would never have known without this app! Would have just thought the stalks were turning black because I have a black thumb 😂
My only critique is the cost of the “full version” of the app. I would be *happy* to pay the developers for their hard work on this app because it’s really so incredible, but $30 a YEAR is much too steep for me. What happened to apps being a couple bucks at most? What’s the deal with this whole yearly subscription thing?? I personally feel like the creators would make more money by charging less and having more buyers, but I’m no accountant. I’ll just keep clicking “continue with free version” til the cows come home.
A truly excellent app!
I recently found myself with some time on my hands to hike the trails of Balboa Park in San Diego. I practiced herbal medicine for many years under my acupuncture license in several states, but it's been a long time since I identified and collected plants in the wild. So, I thought it would be fun if I could identify some of the local plants. Spoiler alert: most of them do not appear to be of any medicinal value, but they're still fun to look at. This is the second or third app of this sort that I have tested, and it is infinitely better than any of the others.
When you first open the app, it looks like you need to buy a subscription to use it, but that is not the case. You can dismiss the subscription prompt and open the camera to snap a pic. I'm not sure exactly what you get with the subscription, but it looks like it would be useful for a serious hobbyist and awesome for serious home gardening enthusiasts and organic farmers. In fact, an organic farmer friend of mine says that he regularly uses it to identify weeds in his crops. The only thing I've run across so far that I can't do with the free version is save the photos. There may also be a limit to the total number of pictures per day, but I am not sure and definitely have yet to max out on one of my hikes.
Enthusiastically recommended with no conflict of interest.
Not specific Enough, Had trouble identifying Pine and Crab Apple
Overall, I like the App. I didn’t have time to try the ‘diagnostic’ part of the App. I used it to identify some trees, flowers, bushes and vegetables in my yard and my neighbors’ yards. It did pretty well, identifying about 80% accuracy. It had difficulty identifying the pine trees and it never got the Crab Apple correct (which is small right now, and has no flowers). It identified Rose of Sharon plant, but could not tell me which color flowers were on each plant. Similarly, it got the Garden Dahlia correct, but could not further differentiate the type of flowers on the plant. The nice part is that you could send instant feedback if it identifies a plant incorrectly, and you know what the plant should be! If you don’t know, you can still send feedback easily. I couldn’t find a way to categorize my plants into Trees, bushes, flowers or vegetable garden plants. That improvement would be awesome! I could not create a separate tab for another person’s yard plants. That would make it better for people who might want to use it for their gardening business. This App shows promise, but I don’t want to pay $30 a year for the App. Nice App, but needs better plant differentiation and customization into Trees, bushes, vegetables, etc… I like that they have some gardening books in the App, but you can’t download them and read in another reader App. You must read them in the App.
